Want to learn how to ride a unicycle?

Look no further. We can help you!

Learning to ride a unicycle is challenging but not impossible. It’s the primary reason why our sport remains niche worldwide. There is no instant gratification because it requires perseverance and dedication. Something that Donna, the OddWheeler understands. She was once a beginner WITHOUT a teacher. It took her 2 years to confidently boast that she can ride a unicycle after much trial and error with technique and equipment. Now with over a decades worth of riding experience in unicycling Donna has developed a 1 hour lesson which will give you a sense of what it feels like to ride a unicycle. But she won’t leave you UPD’ing (unplanned dismount). Below is a lesson and pricing structure to have you confidently riding atop a unicycle.
